Is there an optimal orientation to mount the slew drive?

Yes, when mounting the slew drive horizontally, it is always recommended to mount the drive with the housing on top and seals on bottom, when possible. When mounting vertically, it is recommended to mount in the worm over orientation

Can I rotate the drive with the hex opposite the input shaft?

Yes, a hand wheel or hand drill can be used to rotate the drive via the hex on the worm
